Sauvion Bouvray Chenin Blanc Loire Valley France 2015

Founded in 1935, Sauvion is one of the oldest estates in the Sevre et Maine region. Sauvion’s winemaker is third-generation vintner Pierre-Jean Sauvion.
Sourced from 30-year-old vines planted in calcareous soil, the grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks for 21 days.  Three months sur lie aging adds warm aromas and a creamy mouthfeel.
The nose features floral and ripe fruit notes (citrus, quince), veering towards honeyed notes after a few months in bottle. On the palate, the wine is off-dry and medium bodied with food-friendly acidity.  The finish is dry with lingering notes of honey and dried fruit.
100% Chenin Blanc.
